Job Call: Accessibility Coordinator

Hosted by Playwrights Theatre Centre (PTC)

Do you have a passion for integrating theatre and accessibility practice together? Are you an advocate for underrepresented communities? Do you excel at working across platforms, from the digital to in-person events?

If this is you, apply for the Accessibility Coordinator role with PTC.

Playwrights Theatre Centre is looking for an accessibility coordinator with experience in accessibility practice for public events and digital projects. We need an individual that has worked with community consultants and accessibility service organizations before. We’re looking for someone that has training in working with underrepresented communities and groups, with knowledge of the fundamentals of conducting respectful and safe communications. Also, has supported the implementation of accessibility values for events, and a strong understanding of accessibility features for various digital platforms. Furthermore, we need a collaborative and self-sufficient person that values teamwork. Mental Health First Aid, Anti-Racism, Anti-Oppression and Equity Diversity Inclusivity (EDI) training is a plus.

Extended deadline: January 11th at 4:00 PM PST
